I'm packing a bag to take to the hospital for my DS2's day surgery this afternoon. He's having surgery for a hernia and I'm trying to think of all the things I should bring. So far I have:
- a onzie and sleeper for him - his favourite bed time toys (glowworm and stuffed rabbit) - his favourite books - sippy cup for drinks post surgery (in case the hospital doesn't have one). - books etc for hubby and me for during the surgery.
in case we're held in overnight (surgery is scheduled for midafternoon) - sleeping bag for him - PJs for me and a toothbrush and my birth control pills
what have I forgotten? I'm leaving before lunch so there's not much time for this thread, I wish I'd thought of it last night but we just found out the surgery was today yesterday and we're a bit flustered.
thanks everyone, I'm off to add a water bottle and some snacks for after to the bag.
I think we could be in for a long wait as the whole youngest first thing isn't going to apply to us as he was just added to the list yesterday after our first appt with the consultant. But we'll make it through, and I'm veyr thankful he's getting his surgery so quickly so that we don't have to worry about needing emergency surgery in the next few weeks!
My DS2 had day surgery a fortnight ago, it was fine. I sent DH to the anaesthetic room, but went and got him. We were allowed to go after he'd done a wee, so take his favourite cup for water. And we piled the snacks into him after. Good luck.
